SumBlox are an innovative way to develop math skills.
Learning to count, add, subtract, multiply and much more is as simple as stacking building blocks. SumBlox are solid wood stacking number blocks designed to improve numeracy and make learning more accessible, more fun, and more exciting. They encourage both hand-eye coordination and improve motor skills. Smaller sets of SumBlox will introduce individual children to learning with SumBlox and larger sets allow exploration of more complex concepts, and further cooperation with other learners. There is endless potential to learn with building blocks, and the freedom to create something beautiful is confined only to your imagination!
The Starter Set is the perfect way to begin using SumBlox at home - 27 SumBlox solid wood educational counting blocks to develop fundamental math skills.
The Starter Set includes:
- 10 x single blocks
- 1 x ten block, and
- 2 of each 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 blocks.
SumBlox were developed to help children learn a wide range of mathematical skills through play. With hands-on discovery, children explore new ideas for themselves. Each block's size is reflective of its numerical value. Seeing the mathematical problems take physical shape helps the child in understanding new concepts. The Starter Set is a great way to start your child off on their journey of learning with SumBlox.
A great accessory for Montessori or Waldorf classrooms. For more game ideas, see SumBlox's official Lessons page.

SumBlox started as a small family business In 2012 in Texas, the United States.
As a voluntary math tutor at an elementary school then, David Skaggs (SumBlox - Inventor) was looking for something that would help his students envision numbers. Instead of countless rephrased math paper exercises, David created combinations of numbers with actual height value. Through stacking those numbers in games, students can visualize math concepts and break down problems quickly - they're learning through playing!
